Springfield Town history:

The area was first known as Eureka when it was granted a charter on 20 August 1761.

The "Comtu Falls" (great noise) was named by the local Native Americans. This waterfall drops an eighth of a mile and was an early source of energy for the community. The sawmills were first to come in the 1770's. From then on, the area was known for its inventiveness and the attraction for business. It was also known as the "Cradle of Invention" and still is referred to as "Precision Valley" for all the manufacturing which has settled in the area. The first machine shop came in the mid-1800's.

James Hartness came to Springfield to work. He became well-known and contributed greatly to the success of the area. He also became Governor of Vermont from 1921 to 1923. He was the first licensed pilot in the state and built Vermont's first airport, now called Hartness State Airport.
